You can't AFAIK, because they are not true Windows controls. That is,
they are not windows as far as Windows is concerned--they don't have
handles, etc. For better or for worse, this is how REBOL handles
cross-platform GUIs, so the chance of changing it is probably near
VID is meant to be a small, lightweight, GUI system. If we want RT to
consider extending it--for things like better focus handling, visible
hot-keys, skinning, etc.--we have to make an excellent argument for
it. The upcoming View 1.3 release won't have any of these changes
